    So the headset bearings on my strive are fairly shot – Cane Creek don’t seem to really get sealing.
    Top ones not an issue, ZS cup, but bottom is integrated and I can’t get it out.

    Don’t want to force it… should it be a press fit? I thought these just dropped in and were held in by compressing everything, so when the forks were out it should be a loose bearing.

    Anyone else got one of these and changed them easily enough? Also what bearings did you go for – hope don’t seem to do one but edge sports seem decently priced, anybody used these? http://www.edgesportsuk.com/store/index.php/components/headsets/1-5.html

    the strive’s bottom bearing should drop out fairly easily, mine could be pulled out with my fingers its probably just a bit gummed up.

    should go back in very easily too, no need for a press.

    I got my replacement from Superstar. Only £8. Search on here for the spec.

    Old one tapped out very easily with a screwdriver.

    Can’t find anything on here regarding spec. I’ve asked canyon but their response is to sell me a new headset for £50, asked again for technical info but nothing forthcoming yet.

    Which type did you go for from superstar – seems type 2 or 4 is IS52/40 which is correct for the frame, but there are slight differences in the specs.

    Options seem to be 52mm OD 7mm height 45×45 angles
    51.8mm OD 8mm height 36×45 angles

    I can’t work out which is which, the cane creek headset fit tool lists both as options.

    Thanks

    Removed mine a while back for fettling, it was a really tight fit and took some getting out. Looked like no grease had been used when putting it in.
